Summary: I am an electrical engineering student right now, and this is actually a really nice college laptop. I use it for media, mail, word processing, League/Smite, and other light programs (I use a desktop for all CAD, and just generally more resource thirsty applications.) For the $550 pricepoint I couldn't find a better computer. I had to install a wifi driver from the manufacturer of the card because my computer constantly would cut in, and out of signal.
Pros: The laptop has ample memory for having multiple apps open. The touch screen is great. (it makes windows 8.1 actually enjoyable) The speakers are much better than most. I very much enjoy the vibrancy of the screen. I don't have a problem with random "gestures" on the trackpad. Unlike many others it really just hasn't done it to me.
Cons: White body gets marks easily Having an AMD cpu is not ideal; however, it works perfectly well for most applications. The WIFI card was, at first, faulty (Not sure if that was a windows problem--it fixed it's self).
Excerpt: Great PC except the processor is too slow for what I need. Partially my fault I should have check the processor speed while shopping - didn't think they sold slow machines anymore. Buyer beware.Very happy with the rest of the computer, good amount of memory and HD space which I paid attention to while shopping.
Summary: very nice laptop, not use to windows 8.1 x64 but a take on from win 7 win xp win vista.

Summary: the delivery was great as promised. Now the laptop is fairly good as described i have had it for 2 weeks now. i use it for work, Im a security system installer and i didnt want to go crazy spending money .im not a big fan of windows 8 . But the touch screen is pretty usefull . The screen and tge unit itself is much bigger then i anticipated. I would i recomend it to a freind ? Defineteley not for personal use.
Excerpt: Nice laptop. Light weight, nice keyboard and screen. Just having a difficult time getting use to the mouse. Use to the split mouse tabs with right and left click. This laptop only has one tab. Which makes it difficult to navigate the up and down strokes of the mouse. Otherwise, nice laptop.
